The Order of Malta Florida Prison Ministry creates a light of hope in the darkness through the Evening Rosary of Common Petition. Launched in December 2016, inmates from across the country are invited to say the rosary. Meeting at 8:00 PM each evening they join in praying for one of seven specific petitions common to all, other petitions may also be added.
Five inmates from the Columbia Correctional Institution in Lake City, FL are the first to reach the goal of praying 1,000 rosaries. Each gentleman received a Certificate of Recognition from a dedicated Catholic volunteer, Mary Tucker, who supervises the Evening Rosary of Common Petition Program.
This achievement was a year in the making and goes to the heart of our Marian roots bringing the Blessed Mother to the incarcerated by way of prison ministry. Enthusiasm for the program continues to grow as inmates from across Florida pledge to say 1,000 rosaries. God bless them all!
